I go back into the foothills of southwestern Alberta though cutts are the fish we find there. I like it when I am the only guy I run into sometimes.
Do you have pictures of where you go without giving it away?
I'll get some of mine on photobucket so I can post.....Kerry

You betcha... and some think I'm nuts, because I spend so much time up in the high country instead of going after big ol' bows and browns below ten thousand feet... until they catch one of these...

Brookies fight like crazy, and are maybe the most beautiful fresh water fish that swim... hmmm... or are cutts? ;)

Yes I fish for natives in NEPA. They aren't nearly that big. Most don't go 6 inches but pound for pound or should I say ounce for ounce where I fish they are the sportsman of the species. Not all fancy jumping like rainbows but inch for inch a powerhouse. They are my favorite!

where in NEPA? I'm currently in SEPA and go up to the poconos every now and again to visit my parents summer house... more fishing locations would be greatly appreciated!

Here In the California high country we take pride on our fisheries.

I go where no man has gone before and the fish swim right up to me and jump right on my hook.
The water is crystal clear, you can see them all and they can see you it makes for great angling.
I was at 7500 feet evelation and no one was around ...it takes a hardy hike to get where no none goes.

Thunder and rain was the theme of the day yesterday but it seemed that every other cast was a rainbow or a brookie.

gone fishing....

The Bartooths have lots of places to be alone. Some only 3 miles from yellowstone.
